About Something Dirty

Something Dirty is a collaboration of four musicians who each bring unique influences and musical experience to the band's sound. Songwriters Gregg Swanson and Jesse Fish share guitar and singing duties, while drummer Dan Scroggin and bassist Chad Crowell provide a steady foundation for the rhythm and melodies.

We're not really sure exactly what our music is, but we like playing it, and people seem to like listening to it. When we started booking gigs, we called ourselves indie or alternative, but now that we have a season of live shows behind us, we look at what we're playing and kind of shrug our shoulders.

With influences from the 80's and 90's that include Dinosaur Jr., Screaming Trees, Pixies, Pearl Jam, Toadies, Sugar, and Mudhoney, there are plenty of reasons to think of Something Dirty as an alt-rock band. But really, we're more of a straight rock band where those influential sounds show up in our music here and there.

Something Dirty is currently booking gigs in and around Central Oregon.
